Clean Your Coils, Ducts & Filters

About this Project

Cleaner Systems use Less Energy and Just Work Better

A little light cleaning goes a long way to keep your systems running smoothly and efficiently. Clean your radiator or duct vents, routinely replace your HVAC filters, rinse your outdoor central air conditioner coils once a year, and keep your refrigerator coils clean and free of dust. Clean HVAC filters also reduce the allergens and other particles in your air, which helps to keep your home healthy. Check your filter once a month during high-use winter and summer seasons.


Did you know that dirty air filters are the leading cause of HVAC system failure?  A dirty filter makes the air handler fan motor work harder, which overtime, can lead to early system failure.

Use your vacuum attachments to suck up the dust bunnies from under and behind your refrigerator and start with a long-handled brush to remove dust that has collected on the evaporator coils.  The duster attachment should also work well to clean your heating/air conditioning duct vents.
